News, Updates, and Whatnot

How is your week going?  I hope well.  Mine has been pretty good so far.  I like where Book 3 is taking me.  The world of the Immortal Guardians is really changing.  And I love being able to continue the stories of the heroes and heroines from Darkness Dawns and Night Reigns.

Darkness Dawns is being highlighted by Janine on The Season for Romance Blog today!!!  Woohoo!  She gave it an awesome 5-star Chart Topper review in which she said:

"It has all the best elements of paranormal romance: strong leads, outstanding world building, plenty of action, and an intimate romance.  I thought I’d read every possible spin on the vampire mythos but Duvall’s Darkness Dawns is both refreshing and compelling."
Comment for a chance to win a signed copy of Darkness Dawns + some Immortal Guardians swag.

I just found out that Kirsten Potter will be reading Night Reigns for the audiobook, which will be released on December 6th with the other editions.  She's the same actress who read Darkness Dawns, and reviewers really liked her performance, so I was very happy to hear this.  According to her bio on the Tantor Audio website, she "has performed on stage, film, and television, including roles on Medium, Bones, and Judging Amy. An award-winning audiobook narrator, Kirsten has won AudioFile Earphones Awards for her reading of The Snowball by Alice Schroeder and her performance as Barbara in George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara."  


I've also started to send out Night Reigns ARCs to reviewers.  Now I'll spend the weeks until they post their reviews biting my nails and hoping they like it.  Then I'll do the same thing hoping readers will like it when it's released.  :-)  It's an exciting and nerve-racking time.  LOL!

Have a great day!



  1. I'll look into the audio of Darkness Dawns, I love listening when going to and from work.
    Can you tell s the title of #3 yet?

  2. Thanks, Diane! I have a title in mind, but won't announce it until I turn the manuscript in and see if my editor likes it or would prefer I choose another. :-)

  3. So so ready for December 6th to get here! As soon as I finished Darkness Dawns I went looking for the next book! Come on December ;)

  4. It's all very exciting & congrats on the GREAT review.
